    Works Components. Put mine in over a year ago and haven't had a creak yet.

    I'm using a 1.5 degree cane creek with a 180mm fox float on a 2010 delirium and it seems to work ok. However I tried running the fsa angleset on a 2012 glory and I hated the feeling of it. They can be more work to get lined up and installed properly. When I buy a new frame headtube geo will be a big factor for me because I will not run another angleset.

    Works. Cheaper and much better/simpler design. Cane Creek drove me crazy for awhile, you heard it that first time we rode I think. With that said, once it was messed with by Tread I never had issues until I put on the 40.

    Are you at 64 now? I was riding in AZ and dropping over some decent sized boulders made me appreciate extra 2 degrees I picked up, from 65.5 to 63.5 I think.

    I have both, the WORKS and the CANE CREEK. I am considering replacing the CC with another WORKS unit, also checking this product out:

    I've been unable to get a response from Works Components through email and their Facebook page. Looks like they've been active on facebook in the interim (2 months) and it also looks like I'm not the only one having trouble getting in touch. Anybody know what the deal is?

    They are not the best with emails and communication. I remember one person emailed them about his order and they replied that it had shipped a day after it arrived.
